Dance Sequins Studio

About us

Interesting Fact: 





    

            In Elementary School My Sister Lisa and I started a free summer dance studio in the driveway of our Minnesota home and continued it for 10 years. We advertised, had scheduled class times, choreographed each dance, and put on a big show for family and friends at the end of each summer. Our dream as little girls has come true. We now have our very own dance studio and are able to share our love for dance with others! Here is a video of our drive way studio in 1993 performing Newsies!

Always reach for your dreams it is never too late. We believe in you!
